We. the undersigned, having purchased of Mr lsham

it to the favor of the Public. It washes very rapidly,
and the work is much belter done than is usually done
in the old way, and with less wear to the Clothing.
It far exceeds Our expectations, and has only to be
seen in operation to satisfy the most skeptical of its
utility and economy. We fittve no doubt of its being
generally used wherever introduced.

of a brother "diplomatist of tlie late American
Ambassador to the Court of St. James. ; After
a resnme of the condition of the United Btates,
the writer thus portrays Mr Buchanan's charac
ter, afid indicates-his policy as President:
"Mi' i3uchanail has one quality, and perhnps
only one, in common with Louis Napoleon; he
keeps his own counsel. In both instances it has
been a source of power and a liieans of success.
It is easier to offer a tiegative than a positive
affirmation aslo the policy of the future Presi
dent; He will certainly not be a King Log.
He will be no puppet iu the hands of his sop
portersj nor will he, knowingly, allow his friends
to sway his better judgment. Hi will not
blindly commit himself to a one-sided policy,
nor rashly throw defiance in the face of all
parties and governments who declare for the
interests of civilization and humanity.
It is only by a knowledge of his personal and
political character that an opinion can beformtd
of the policy the President elect is likely to
pursue. By giving onr readers a description,
borrowed from those whu have long known
him, inferences may be drawn as to his probable
conduct when the time comes for him to exei"
cise the high powers with which he has been
invested. Physically, he is a large, powerfully
built man; indeed, neither physical y, morally,
nor politically, is there anything little about

and of fair complexion, and, although past

what the other sex, (who mast be allowed to
decide in such matters) call a. handsome man.

could see a vast' Weal more with half an eye
than all our .Ministers when they opened both
theirs to the fullest extent: as they had to do
more than once, if all tales be true, during the
course of their 'transaction of business' with Mr
Buchanan. He is hale and vigorous, of regular
and active habits, and unexceptionable moral
conduct ) conscientiously religious, a Presbyte
rian, with more indulgence for those of other
creeds than is some:imes found in persons of
that persuasion ; kind-hearted, generous, and
charitable, as many instances reported by those
who knew him will prove; distinguished for
great prudence and sagacity in making his dc
cisions, and for firmness in their execution
when taken. He has forethought and cool
self-possession, conservative iu opinion and
policy, and proves the soundness of his judg
ment by being favorable to the Conservative
party in Englandi He has been heard to say
mofe than once 'It is remarkable that the
Conservative leaders and party in England have
always been mote inclined to be friendly with
the United States than the Whigs.' In this,
by the way, lie is not singular, for we have
heard a similar opinion expressed by other dis
He has beeii from early life a successful law
ycr in extensive practice, and most ably filled
the highest posts in the Government, nest to
that of President, having .been Secretary of
State, Envoy to St. Petersburg,- &e. He nev
er was married; an early and mutual attach
ment is spoken of by his friends, whose object
was, by one of whose terrible dispensations
which certain, steadfast natures never can for
get, snatched from him. Like another distin-
rrtiichr? A irinripan Wjishintrtnn Trvliicr who
faithful to the memory of r her whom lie .hits
lost. Although the private lives of men in high
stations are considered as belonging to the
public domain, it would not, we think, be deli
cate to allude more particularly to the circum
stances attendant an this deep affliction in the
outset of JVIr Buchanan's career. What we
have said suffices to show that no cold insensi
bility of character condemned him to celibacy
In manner, Mr Buchanan is courteous, and in
conversation mild and deliberate, with a smack
of the old school His beating is calm and
dignified, bis temper and language under com-1
I nlete control: although on occasions, when
Pen.ou.1 or official slight
j was intended, he has shown that, although his
i . t 1 1 . :...: , wisM
parents were Irish, he can Vindicate the ClaJM
of his family to a Scotch origin,-by acting tfp
to the motto, "iSemo me inpune lacessit'
The uew President is designated by soma as
tbe zealous leader of the Slaveoeiacy, and re
ported to be the warin advocate of Slavey.
- That this is correet in its full extent we must
be permitted to doubt. Air Buchanan is not a
native of a Slave State, bat n Pennsylvania
who never owned a slave in his lifi' nor is he

able. vSome of those high in office considered
him as a sort of diplomatic hedgehog preju
diced against England, Jicrstile to hef Gervern
ment, and thoronghly philo Russian. Thosd
who saw him most do not share in this opinion,
and are, far from anticipating such violent
measures as may be predicted frefm' the tenor of
the Ostend manifesto. Bnt the flattering At
tentions showered upon him in St. Petersburg,
not only within the Imperial Palace, bnt by
all the nobility, may have rendered ihim alive
to the coldness he experienced from certain
of our aristocracy.- He was on very friendly
terms with many peisons of distinction here
and it speaks in his favor that those who tcnew
him best liked him most; but other.s, especially
some with whom he came in contact in his oflt-'
cial position, iegarded him as Washington
Irving describes the old Dutch families of New
York to have looked upon the Yankees, 'witb
great respect and abhorrence." ..
Americans have informed us that he lefi
England, with feelings of the deepest respect
and esteem for the highest personages of the
realm, but had lost much of such feelings fo'
those who compose our Government. Desiring
as a man, all prosperity to our sovereign, he
must naturally wish her a better ministry, while"
as President, in the not improbable contingency"
of the United States again retjniring England
to abandon an island or give vp a consul, ho"
would desire the continuances in office of these
now at the head of affairs, who have distin
guished themselves by doing such things with rt
jaunty, unblushing grace that is inimitable; and
have eaten enormous leeks, not only with gusto,
but to the sound of their own trumpets. Mr
address confirms our anticipations of iVis coti'-r
servative policy, and assures us that he will
use his power and great abilities to lead baek
giant Republic to the paths marked out so im
pressively by its founder.
MicitidAxiAVA. The Detroit Free Press
relates the following anecdote of the Black
Republican Senator elected to succeed Gcu.-
"During the tote campaign, Mr Zachariah
Chandler, United Statds Senator elect, improv
ed himself in stump speaking by taking lessons
of a recently graduated youth of the University
named Dexter. On one occasion Dexter, had
taught him to recite an extract from rkc4
which was intended to be brought in witfi great
force and tremendous applause Having heard
him recite, just before time for public Speaking
Dexter went down to hear and see 'Zachariah1
Climb the tree.' He did it well, the passag
from Dui'ke was finished, and drew dotvn the
plaudits of the multitude. Rut, in order to
give it still more force, Chandler remark-ed, it
his most impressive manner: 'Such stfch,-fcllow-citizens

tal Rurke, in the Senate of the United States.
